Sobre o curso

Are you a teacher in higher education wanting to get the best out of your students and assessments? Then on behalf of Risbo, Erasmus University Rotterdam, we would like to welcome you to this MOOC on Assessment in Higher Education. In this MOOC we will guide you through the different phases of preparing, creating and evaluating the assessments in your course. After participating in this MOOC, you will be able to: 1. Design an assessment that is constructively aligned (content, level, methods) with the course objectives and activities 2. Apply the quality criteria with respect to validity, reliability and transparency for construction of assessments and assessment items 3. Analyze the assessment output and results, assess the quality of the assessment and make decisions about students’ grades accordingly 4. Formulate future improvements for an assessment For the assignments, you will be working with your own teaching materials. For example you will create your own assessment plan for your course. Next to that you will become part of a learning community with teachers from all over the world. We are offering you instructional videos, interviews, animations and checklists. In addition to these, there will be course activities, such as assessments, and discussion prompts. By participating in this MOOC, you will find answers to the following questions: • What is the role of assessment? • How can you select the right methods of assessment for your course? • What is constructive alignment? • How can an assessment plan and matrix help you in the construction of assessments? • Is it possible to make an absolute reliable and valid assessment? • How can the formulation of good assessment questions have an impact on that? • What is the role of feedback? • How can rubrics help with providing feedback? • What are the things to consider when performing an exam or item analysis? What aspects should you look out for? • How do you draw conclusions from an exam analysis and make plans for future improvements? • If good students fail on certain questions, what does this say about the question… or about your teaching? Are you ready for enhancing your teaching skills? Then take this journey with us....

Very intriguing 5 weeks indeed. You need to literally spend at least 4 hours a day, otherwise, you will be staring at a backlog. Personal experience, but I managed to pass. Happy for that!!

I had a great opportunity to learn more about the assessment and its structure. I am sure the skills that I have learnt in this course will be helpful for me in future. Thank you !!!!!

I enjoyed the material and all of the different techniques used to go through this course. It was a new experience for me. I felt I had learned a lot during the session. It was a lot of work into the course, but that was good because it did help me learn. What I did not like about the course is the way it was assessed by peers. The reason for this is, I feel that the peers did not fully read my assignments as I was told I was missing information. I had doubled checked and all the information was there, but it is on a second page, so if they do not see it, they just gave me a 0, with my only feedback being that I did not complete the assignment.... Part of this course was learning about how to provide constructive feedback, but if they do not look at the whole assignment, they are not able to provide the constructive feedback that would benefit me. Therefore, the peer assessment did not work very well in my case.

Probably, the course is good for some people. But, for me, it is no so motivating. The videos are very long.

Yes, the ideas are great. You learn a lot from the videos and some of the readings. However, many of the readings require you to purchase them. That, however, is a small thing. The main reason I give this certificate class 2 stars is that the peer review assignments and the final quiz suck. We are asked to grade for things that weren't presented in the lectures, readings or the assignments themselves. The final quiz asks a LOT of questions about our interpretations related to statistical data; this was NOT covered in the lectures. I didn't do much of the readings on this because statistics isn't something I know or understand, so doing those readings wouldn't have helped me to pass the first time. Yes, I had to retake it; my second result was 83%, but most of the questions I missed were related to these interpretations of statistics (no surprise there, right?). There was a clear lack of alignment, something they emphasized in the lectures. It suggests that the teachers who created this course don't practice the things they're asking us to do, and the best evidence for that is the graded assignments. This certificate was free to me due to CourseraPlus; if you're thinking about spending money, don't. Just audit this certificate class, as you'll get more out of it that way. Spending money on this is a waste of money unless you need to have the certificate for your institution. I feel my learning was cheated.
